UPDATE: Thursday morning, a jury ruled the NFL did breach contract, but did not commit fraud. The judge is now in the process of reviewing damages.

DALLAS - Attorneys were falling out of their seats Wednesday at the Super Bowl seating trial after they discovered possible perjury by a witness during jury deliberations.

Yep.  Witness Scott Suprina, whose company was paid to install the temporary seats for the Super Bowl in 2011, cleared his conscience Wednesday in an article published on

In it, Suprina says he stayed out of the news and deflected blame from the NFL because league officials told him that it was in his best interest.

This caused the plaintiff's attorney to ask the judge to let the jury go for the day while they investigated the new info.  The judge said no, letting deliberations continue.

The trial is set to start back up Thursday and the judge could potentially declare a mistrial or change the jury's decision if, in fact, she decides Suprina did perjure himself.

It looks like this could turn into a bumpy ride - so hang on to your seats.
